Conference: Protecting the Nation’s Health: Doubling the NIH, NSF and CDC Budgets by Cutting Nuclear Weapons Spending
September 9 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDTFree
The annual Congressional Discretionary Budget is the clearest expression of our nation’s policies. The development of diagnostics, therapies, and vaccines needed to protect our health depends primarily on the work of the federal National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and Centers for Disease Control. It will not be possible to provide the programs needed to protect our citizenry from current and future threats to health without cutting weapons spending, particularly nuclear weapons, both the most expensive, and most dangerous.
